Charlotte Bellis: an incredible story of rights-denied

an incredible story of denial of one’s rights.
this is the story of a New Zealand al Jazeera journalist who recently became famous for her fight against the Taliban in Afghanistan after the Americans fled to the territory that had been occupied after the 11th of September 2001 well over 20 years ago.
she has always given the news on the piece and informed everyone about the status of women in the Afghan land denigrated by the Taliban.
recently she became pregnant with her partner, also a journalist-photographer for the new york times, and asked the New Zealand authorities to return home to continue the treatment of the pregnancy.
In Doha, Qatar, she could not return because she was not married and was denied a visa.
In Qatar, it is illegal to have children without being married, so she decides to resign from Al Jazeera and return to New Zealand, but the strict anti-covid rules imposed by the government of Jacinda Arden do not allow her to do so.

The only country for which she and her partner have valid visas is Afghanistan, and so she decides to contact the Taliban: “We are happy for you, you can stay here, you won’t have any problems” they reply from Kabul, advising her to report that she is married.
And in case it turns out that she is not, “to call them”.
Everything will be fine, she will be told.
A part of her life spent fighting for the rights of Afghan women, she now finds herself being treated better by those she was fighting for than in her country of origin. The little girl is expected to be born in May.
Who knows if there will be a happy ending on the New Zealand side, given that care for this type of medical situation is scarce in the Afghan land, depredated by the crisis due to social unrest and government.

Hopefully, everything will go well for this journalist called to do her job and denied by a nation of birth of its right to return home to conduct with serenity with her partner the care that she deserves to owe to both her and her child.

good luck, charlotte, we are all on your side for you like millions of New Zealanders around the world for the past two years that been unable to return home due to the rigid, inflexible, and insensitive rules of the New Zealand government.

The personification of the capable politician!

Jacinda Arden

The personification of the capable politician!

At his last appearances and political gatherings, we embrace and kiss each other not because people are irresponsible, but because there is no longer any need for the mask and social distancing.

New Zealand, led by the enterprising and kind-minded Jacinda Arden, flourished by defeating the coronavirus twice, with only 25 deaths to mourn.

Elected for the second time, the kiwi population believes that she protects them from the dangers the surrounding countries face.

“If all nations had a serious and capable politician like you, the world would go in the right direction,” says one of your fans.

She has faced and gone through crisis after crisis, including COVID-19, the volcanic eruption that killed 21 people, and the reckless attack on mosques by the fringe.

“white supremacy” that killed 51 innocent people.

Immediately afterward, he worked hard, praising zero tolerance towards extremist groups and racism.

However, how did New Zealand win the battle of the pandemic? From the very beginning, Wellington’s goal was neither containment nor slowing down the infection or immunity of the flock, but the immediate total suppression of the virus. The premier played ahead:

  • the blockade of Chinese travelers in early February
  • the closing of borders to non-residents in mid-March
  • quarantine at the borders
  • then carpet swabs
  • contact tracking

On March 23, when the pandemic was still at an early stage, and the infected were only 100 imposed a month of total lockdown, then extended by a week. A strategy that proved successful because the contagion curve approached zero in just two weeks. Despite these data, Ardern decided not to relax the restrictions for Easter in order to “defeat” the disease ultimately. The New Zealand method of “elimination” rather than “containment” is being studied. “Compared to the rest of the world, we have done something incredible,” said the premier.

For the second wave that began in August in the middle of summer, New Zealand chose to immediately implement restrictive measures for almost a week, including severe restrictions on freedom of movement in Auckland, a city affected by new infections, and travel restrictions to the rest of the country. Going into detail, Auckland faced with a level-three lockdown.

Only exits were allowed for fundamental reasons and non-essential businesses, including restaurants and bars, were closed in those days. Here lies the heart of the New Zealand model, and it is based on two pillars: intervene quickly, quickly and clearly, and rely on direct linear communication.

“Second wave” defeat

As we have seen in the second wave, the New Zealand government has chosen softer and more targeted interventions. The mission, it seems, has succeeded again. The epidemiological curve approached zero within a few weeks. 

A model that works as in medicine, the early diagnosis and immediate intervention before the situation start to degenerate and uncontrollable.

These are some of the young leader’s many victories, cutting her salary by 20% while remaining in solidarity with her fellow citizens who have lost their jobs and are in difficulty.

While in Italy, the first revolts begin, on the other side of the globe who have the courage and hope to create opportunities and a decent future thanks to the skills and honesty of which every politician and worker should take note.

The real honest politician is the capable politician, said Giordano Bruno,

Maybe this time, we found someone “Top.”
